There’s even more Rock at the 10th edition of Rock in Rio Lisboa! Living Color are the latest confirmation of the festival, which celebrates its twentieth anniversary this year.

The New York band that performed in 2022 at Rock in Rio with the legendary Steve Vai will now take to the Galp Stage at Rock in Rio Lisboa on June 15th, thus completing the stage lineup for the same day. One more reason to confirm that Rock has arrived at Parque Tejo-Lisbon, on a day that will feature performances by important bands and artists, now joined by Living Colour.

Known as one of the most influential rock bands of the late 80s and early 90s and combining heavy metal, funk, hip-hop, punk, hard rock and jazz fusion, Living Colour returns in force to stages around the world in 2024, with the opening concerts of Extreme’s “Thicker Than Blood Tour”, which passes through the USA and Canada, and with their concerts at some summer festivals, including their mini tour of the United Kingdom, which features two concerts, and in South America, which has four shows scheduled in Brazil, Chile and Argentina.

With lyrics ranging from personal to political themes, in some cases attacking Eurocentrism and racism in America, the New York rock band formed in 1984 is currently made up of Vernon Reid (guitarist), Corey Glover (vocalist), Doug Wimbish (bassist) and Will Calhoun (bassist), and has released six studio albums to date. Living Colour rose to fame with the release of their debut album, Vivid, in 1988. Although they had several hits, they are best known for their signature song “Cult of Personality”, which won a Grammy© for “Best Performance by Hard Rock” in 1990 and has been consistently used as the entrance theme for professional wrestler CM Punk since 2011. They were also named “Best New Artist” at the 1989 MTV Video Music Awards and won their second Grammy© for their album Time’s Up, released in 1990. His third studio album, Stain, was also well-received by music critics. After splitting up in 1995, Living Colour reunited in late 2000, and have released three more studio albums since then: Collideøscope, in 2003; The Chair in the Doorway, in 2009; and Shade, in 2017. In 2006, the New York band was inducted into the Long Island Hall of Fame, an important milestone in their musical career.

More recently, Living Colour have been preparing their seventh album, and performing on various stages around the world. On June 15th, the band is preparing to take their feet off the ground at Parque Tejo-Lisboa, not with dust, but with lots of Rock!

“Living Color’s performance at Rock in Rio Lisboa only proves two more things – this year there is Rock, and it’s in Rio! On June 15th, Rock will completely invade Parque Tejo-Lisboa. It will truly be a day not to be missed!” says Roberta Media, Executive Vice-President of Rock in Rio.

Remember that the 10th edition of Rock in Rio Lisboa will take place on the 15th, 16th, 22nd and 23rd of June 2024, in the new Cidade do Rock, in Parque Tejo-Lisboa, where fans will be transported to a unique and memorable experience full of animation, music and quality entertainment.
